TOWN HALL RE-OPENING BEGINS JUNE 7
The public is advised that beginning on Monday, June 7, Town Hall will begin a limited re-opening to the public for services.

The entrances at the main lobby on the Third Floor (Finance Department) and on the First Floor (Engineering and Community Development Departments) will be unlocked and front-counter service will be accessible during regular business hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, Monday to Friday.

All requirements set out by Nova Scotia Public Health are to be followed at Town facilities, including wearing masks for those medically able to do so and maintaining six feet of physical distance where possible.

Meetings between staff and members of the public are to be made by appointment only and drop-ins are discouraged. Visiting members of the public will still be required to complete a COVID-19 check-in form for the purposes of contact tracing. In ongoing support of public health measures, we strongly encourage virtual contact (by e-mail, phone or by virtual meetings) when possible and practical in lieu of in-person meetings.

Town Council and Committees of Council will continue to hold virtual meetings until provincial regulations permit larger in-person meetings.

Bridgewater Transit has returned to regular hours. Effective June 7, transit will be in service 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. To track the bus online in real time, visit www.bridgewater.ca/bus.
